Storyline

"Like a Country Song" is a story about JAKE REESON, an up and coming country singer who has the whole world in his hands until his ego gets in the way. With nothing but partying and music on his mind, Jake is forced to take a hard look at himself and the ashes around him after life slowly falls apart. Jake's old flame, BECCA, suddenly reappears in his life after seeing her AGAIN at a local music show. Good girl Becca, never forgetting who Jake is, makes him work for it only to fall for him again. His mother, MIA, harbors a painful secret... the father Jake thought was dead is alive. To protect Jake from the pain of knowing what his father, BO, had become after a horrible accident, Mia thought it best if Jake believed Bo was dead. Jake then eventually has a "random" encounter with Bo on the street in a Nashville suburb that sets off a chain of events to bring Bo back into his life and hopefully reconciliation to the family.

The Musical Gift of God
22 August 2014 | by kaddoxgnzalez32See all my reviews

I was really just shocked by the role that music plays in the movie Like a Country Song. Despite the fact that I normally don't listen to music by Billy Ray Cyrus, I really loved listening to him due to this film. I'm from Wisconsin but part of the film takes place in Nashville where I once lived so I thought it might be a good idea to go and watch it. I can relate to the movie as I once pursued an artistic career myself. I was persuaded to keep watching because he not only put on a great performance but he did something more than that. He actually showed the truth that musicians and artists have other struggles, and these things can take a toll on us.  It goes to show that it's easy to criticize someone not knowing their situation. However the character Bo Reeson eventually goes through his own transition and reconciles with his family.
